Come May 20th, you’ll be able to order pizza just by tweeting to Dominos. That’s not it, if you’re feeling a little too weak, you know from all that hunger, then you just have to tweet the pizza emoji.

Yes, it seems ideal for those days when you’re craving a cheese burst pizza and you’re just not in the mood to pick up the phone or fill out an online order. You want instant yumminess, with pepperoni on top. Well, tweet your pizza then!
